November TBR Pile

Hellooo everyone. I hope you all had a nice Halloween! :) I’m sorry I haven’t been around much in the past few days: life got a bit hectic and I had so many uni assignments and essays to work on that I didn’t have time for blogging. November is going to be even busier, unfortunately, with end-terms and exams coming up, dissertation, and essays to hand in (and I’m also going up to London on the 17th for a few days) so if I’m not around, that’s the reason for my absence. Anyway, I decided to join this monthly feature called Monthly TBR – which is run by Jenn @ Booksessed – in an attempt to get a bit more focused and organized in my reading habits.

This month’s To-Be-Read pile

November TBR pile

From top to bottom:

  • The Charm Bracelet by Melissa Hill
  • All the Little Animals by Walker Hamilton
  • The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes
  • The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso
  • Northwest Corner by John Burnham Schwartz
  • Eye Contact by Fergus McNeill – read

It’s a selection of review books I got in the past few weeks/months, books I’m hoping to finish before my Christmasy books arrive. I’m already reading Eye Contact and I’m hoping to finish it tonight so I hope 5 books is a manageable amount for this month. :) Fingers crossed!

What books are on your November TBR list? Feel free to leave me a comment or link me up if you have your own TBR post.

    Oh, YAY! London you say? Gosh, I wish I could go to! I have to go win the lottery now.

    Good luck with school! We have it busy too. *sigh* But it’s soon Christmas! (Can you believe how quickly this year has gone?! Wow.)

    • Vicky says:

      Yes! :) It’s just for about 3 days but still – it’ll be nice not having to worry about anything else just have a bit of fun.

      And I KNOW!!! That’s what I keep saying all the time. Where’d this year go?!

  3. I love seeing TBR piles. And yes they help to keep you focused. I do a three month long TBR pile so that I can be more flexible. Here’s my Autumn Reading List.

    Yaaaay, you signed up! There’s something so tantalising about other people’s TBR piles, I don’t know what it is but I love ‘em! I haven’t read any of these books so I’m going to be completely useless on that front, so instead I’ll just say HAPPY NOVEMBER READING! Hope we both manage to get some focus back before winter sets in in earnest! :D

      I know!!! I don’t know what it is but there’s something exciting about seeing what other people will be reading. :) I’m glad it’s not just me, then.

      And yes! I know you’re always busy (like me) but I hope we both manage to get some reading done this month. Happy reading!

      • Ellie says:

        Definitely not just you – it’s intriguing and inspiring all at the same time! Like perusing someone’s bookshelves only on a smaller, more immediate scale. :D

        I had really hoped October might be a good reading month, but alas, I hadn’t reckoned on a huge flurry of post-school holiday tourists and the half term break! I think the schools go back on Monday/Tuesday though, so after that we’ll hopefully have a reading-friendly lull before the Christmas shoppers descend in earnest… *crosses fingers tightly*

  7. Hope you get to read all of these this month! I have The Charm Bracelet and The Girl You Left Behind so I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of them :)

  8. Oh you got The Charm Bracelet! I’ve been eyeing that up for a while now, so I’ll keep an eye out for your review. It’s been on my wishlist for ages because having a charm bracelet is kind of A Thing in my family – every girl gets one at 21 and then she gets two of her Mum’s charms at the same time. It’s nice.

    I was sent The Girl on Paper a while ago by Gallic books and I really struggled with it. The story is fine but the actual prose seemed really stilted, probably because it’s a translation.

  9. I hope you enjoy The Girl you Left Behind, I really enjoyed that one. I liked Northwest Corner too. The Girl on Paper is on my tbr. Hope you have a good month.
